Sound Rush | X-Qlusive Holland 2019

The Dutch, what a wonderful group of human being. The Dutch have been on the forefront of music since the mid 80s, and have dominated the world scene with their unique events and the way these events have been organised. With visitors from all over the world, the Netherlands is a safe haven for those who like to party, and when they party, they want to party hard. Where else on this globe would you like to go, to have a great time? Other countries might have copied the way we organise parties and do things, but the atmosphere in the Netherlands has always been splendid. But is there an event so unique and so Dutch, you have to experience it at least once in your lifetime?

Yes, this event is called 'X-Qlusive Holland'. During this event, everything and everyone turns orange. And no, not orange like Donald Trump. Orange is the colour of the Netherlands, and for this event you had to wear official Dutch attire. The music accompanied this event has also got a Dutch feeling to it: if it does have Dutch lyrics, it gets played. But it needs to be hard and rough, that's the main gist of it. And you need to have fun, a lot of fun. An event I would like to go to, seeing as I am Dutch (even though other Dutch people do not consider Limburgers as Dutch).

This year's event had a wicked line-up: Bass Chaserz, D-Fence, Dr. Ruthless, Endymion, Outsiders, Primeshock, Ransom, Warface, Wildstylez, and more. And the one set I've found on Youtube is the one by Sound Rush. This duo, consists of twins, have been on everyone's radar for a while, and have been pushed forward by the legend that is Headhunterz. And I've got to say that I'm really digging their style. But is their X-Qlusive Holland set one I would appreciate?

Wow. How Dutch can you get it? Who would have thought that you could have a Hardstyle set filled with records by Andre Hazes, Eiffel 65, Marco Borsato, Cascada, and more, and it would be extremely cool? I would never have guessed that this would become the standard. Well, it's standard at this event. And Sound Rush did get the crowd hyped up with their really insanely Dutch set. And thousands of ravers went along with the Dutch theme.

I don't normally go on Youtube to view mixes, but for this one I had to. Certain livesets become legendary when you've got something to watch, instead of just listening to it. As I said before, this event is one I would like to go to. Not just because I'm Dutch, but because the atmosphere at this event looks epic. Just watch the video below, and you can see it clearly that we (the Dutch) know how to throw a party, and showcase our roots distinctively. We are Dutch, we are orange, and we love to party.

Sound Rush's set is happy. It's cool. And Headhunterz is saying the truth, when he gives these boys credit for their music. In this set they've played a lot of their own stuff, and the result is an astonishing mix. It's a bit ruined by the MC, but you all know I am not a fan of MCs at all. Maybe you need to actually be there to feel it and appreciate it, but there's no need for an MC at all. But at least he was having fun.

Does that mean that the tunes are all really high quality? Well, some are really good, but some are cheesy as fuck. 'Wiliam Of Orange' anyone? How cheesy can you get it?

I do love the set, and felt a bit more orange for a split second. Living in the UK, I do miss the Dutchness we Dutchies have. And how cool is it to have Frans Duijts perform at the end? If you are not Dutch you might find it weird, but it just so damn cool.

Check this set out. And appreciate us for being awesome!
